I would say that it’s mostly design and good coding (compliant with WP standards). Numbers 2,3 and 4 can help sales, but they are not mandatory for theme approval. And yes, new authors are still showing every day.
I don’t agree with everything that has been said here. I released a file 4 weeks ago and the exposure was good. I think that on the last 6 weeks exposure was really good when compared to the last 6 months.
Nevertheless, this week booom!!! A lot of files have been approved and I would be really frustrated if my file was accepted yesterday for instance. I also agree that there are some files that maybe should not have been accepted, but it is surely hard to filter everything. This applies specially when subjective matters like design are the only things that prevent a theme from being approved…
I also agree that there’s room for improvement on various aspects like homepage layout/options, recent popular items list, etc… But, honestly, from what I see on Themeforest, the only disrespect for authors is when a file gets disabled without prior notice and even without testing what some buyer stated.
All in all, it’s up to us to deal with the current market state and make our files stand out from the crowd. Fingers crossed anyway for eventual marketplace improvements
imangm saidThese things sometimes happen just because your file was featured/advertised elsewhere. There are actually some websites that bring good traffic to us
I’m here on themeforest 2 years with total >1200 sales. I can tell you there is difference between summer and autumn, between you are featured or no… and bundle period or regular week.
You man just one of the luckiest here – that’s it I think only some few authors maybe so lucky having 1 item and already featured.Anyways, this month is the best so far
No doubt that I’m one of the luckiest authors around
One thing that I’ve learnt yesterday was that you are able to sell good on ThemeForest if you are not on the front page and the bundles are running too. I was surprised to see after being on the front page for 4 weeks, my best selling day was yesterday that I was out of it…Anyway I have to learn so much other things yet
Tsoy saidIt wasn’t me, but let me just add this: if this thread is removed again you should contact Envato support about this instead of opening another thread. If you are good with this thread like you said, Envato staff will unflag your original post.
Okay thats happens again. Can flagmaker write reason why hes made a report?
Ok, so no one is going to flag your post and this will be the your last thread. Good luck with it
I’m sorry, but this is becoming annoying. You open this thread every single day… Don’t take this personally, but is this even allowed?
